RedHeadKel:  emmagreen482017:  thanks for your feedback! i wound up emailing my photographer to see what he thinks about it, so just waiting on his response.

tbh, i’m not really worried about my engagement pics being “timeless”. i see engagement pics (and most pictures) as capturing *this* moment in time – it’s commemorating a specific slice of my life. everything in fashion comes and goes, and even in solid colors you can have the same “ugh, what was i thinking?” reaction 5 years from now because of the cut of things. i guess rather than worry about myself cringing 5 years from now, i’m just going to laugh and think “hey, that was very fashionable at the time!” – just like i do when looking back on stuff i wore in high school and college.

my bigger concern is whether the print will actually photograph – will it be too distracting, etc.

We did three outfits as I really wanted not only more casual photos but formal ones where we’re not in our wedding clothes. 

So we ended up in “date night” clothes, casual clothes, and then formal. I’m so happy we went with a range of styles, I love how they turned out!

ilovesophia:  I went with a print dress for our engagement shoot! It was fall, so I paired it with a drapey cardigan. I may be biased, but I think prints are cute 🙂 

Basically, we just dressed as if we were going on a nice but casual date, since that’s what we wanted our engagement shoot to feel like. We only wore one outfit because I didn’t want to worry about carrying a bag of clothes to change into (we’re in NYC, so no car!).

citygirl828:  aw, I love your dress! I’m in NYC, too (maybe it’s a city girl thing (: ) but we’re doing our shoot out of state.
